Tulsa firefighters rescued a woman from a fire at an apartment complex on Tuesday morning.
Firefighters responded to a fire at the Bradford Creek Apartments near 31st and Garnett just before two in the morning.
District 5 Fire Chief Ronnie Cole says firefighters searched the apartment and found a woman barely breathing with a weak pulse. The crew, John Stapleton, Rob Bunch, Jacob Younger, and Larry Jackson, quickly took her out of the apartment and began CPR.
The victim began breathing on her own and was taken to the hospital for treatment. Chief Cole says "I believe these men, truly, saved a life this morning."
Officials estimate the fire caused about $40,000 in damage. The fire is believed to be caused by electrical issues. Six apartments are displaced because the electrical service cannot be isolated between apartments.
